This work is focused on the influence of porosity when dealing with the fatigue behaviour of the TA6V alloys fabricated by the selective laser melting (SLM) process. The presence of porosity is one of the major issue facing additive manufacturing (AM) of metallic components subjected to fatigue loading. In order to study the effect of porosity on the fatigue behaviour, a vast experimental campaign has been undertaken. These materials are fabricated by the SLM process with different building directions (horizontal, vertical and diagonal) thanks to which specimen batches with different pore sizes are obtained. It is observed that despite a low porosity fraction (around 0.01%), the influence of pores on the fatigue strength of the materials is pronounced. A mapping approach is presented, which links the applied stress, the pore size and the fatigue life. This approach makes it possible to accurately characterize the effect of the porosity size, and also to construct Kitagawa-Takahashi diagrams from S-N data.
